they are entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. that's an entlement, government should give it, and they vote for this president no matter what. john: he took heat for that. how would you have handled that? >> well, in this instance, i think he could have explained it better. i think in those situations you take a crisis -- what could seem like a crisis, a video like that leaked, turn it into an opportunity. let president obama attack first, and then use that as a chance to explain myself saying, you know what? those 47% deserve an opportunity. there's more checks out the door than jobs created. i want to represent the 47% and make sure they have a chance, and i will work for them. that's what you do. you spin obama's policies which are more checks, more dependents, and say, listen, that's a shame. that's a shame they get a check. no onements to get a check from the government. it doesn't feel good. opportunityy feels better. that's what i do for the 47%. john: i thought he was saying it does feel good to them, they like getting a check? don't some people like it? >> i think so
to get a check from the government. itdoesn't feel good. opportunity feels better. that's what i do for the 47%. john: i thought he was saying it does feel good to them, they like getting a check? don't so people like it? >> i think some do. i mean, hey, i'm greek, i know what happened in greece better than anybody. i think giving people free stuff is politically seductive and people don't want to work, but i think if you're going to spin it, and that's what's you're asking me to do, that's how i would. john: president obama was criticized for saying this. >> if you got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> the issue is that they kept saying -- you took the words out of context. that was not the full quote, but the issue was, john, when you play the full quote, it only got worse from there. john: saying things like you had a good teacher paid for by the government. takes a village. why is that a bad argument? >> because i think if they were going to do it the right way, they would have done more unity, all together. instead, it only made business own
was elected as a representative 2010. he served as an investment counsel for the u.s. government reform committee. gentlemen, welcome. it's good to have you here. gentleman you are now both on record as saying you would be open to raising revenue as part of plan to balance the budget and congressman's dold your opponent says as a general proposition he supports 70% and cuts versus 30% in new revenues. what percentage breakdowns would you support? dold: i'm not so sure i have a percentage breakdown. what i've done his work with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and the only bipartisan budget that has come to the florida generation and frankly i think that is what we need to be talking about. need to be talking about how we can get folks together republicans and democrats alike running an organization i know that the only successful organizations are those that come together and actually solve problems and have some sort of compromise. >> moderator: you were asked if you would accept a 1 dollar increase for
about the federal government's role in disasters. i agree with you. if mitt romney is elected, it would be a disaster. this man wants to have 50 states doing 50 different things. how can we have a country like that? >> bill: you can't. by the way, you would have some idiot governors right like there were idiot governors who refused to take stimulus money. >> like the one down in louisiana. >> bill: that's the guy i was talking about. bobby jindal. there are governors that refuse to take high-speed rail money right. >> caller: that's unbelievable because in europe, you don't have to fly everywhere. it would advance the country. i don't understand the retch can thinking. >> bill: i think sandy really proves that this republican thinking is not good for our country. it doesn't fit the needs of americans and it just shows how shallow and wrong mitt romney's whole philosophy is. just think about hurricane sandy. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." stages of a plan they hatched back probably at reagan's
the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and can bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point which is it is now an economic argument focused on states like ohio. we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7% unemployment in that state. so how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is, he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate that would be far below where it is today. he hasn't delivered on his promises. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya? i mean here we have an extraordinary t
works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carla. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really build off presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part of the world appeared word you see progress within cities? where is the u.s. -- part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. as marchers city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, -- a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of t
been so important to obama running so well in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> if you want to talk about trust. what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending $2.50 for every $1 of tax revenue. >> did you see his proposal he's put on the table? >> you want to talk about being factually accurate. it's factually inaccurate it say that governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his entire op-ed. you guys are journalists, i assume you believe that words are im
of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machinery of the white house and the disaster response and being statesman like. that campaign isn't over. that campaign is going on and on, both sides, romney and obama, they're putting out press releases, talking points, hitting each other ads are on the air so it hasn't stopped. >> the surrogates are still in motion. >> except for chris christie. >> that's true. >> he's switched sides now a surrogate for the president. sorry. >> and to bring it back to the reality of the situation, chris christie has an extraordinary amount of work on his hands. you know, the next few weeks or months of his life will be busy with nonpolitical activities. after the break workers are stranded, hundreds of businesses are closed, thousands of flights are canceled and the new york stock exchange is shut down. depending on what model you look at, san
, allows states to spend money that they don't have because the federal government will back them up. stuff like that. then there is getting the briefings from his national security team, sort of the homeland domestic security team. that's john brennan. janet napolitano, and then of course chris fugate who is the head of fema but he was brought in as sort of -- he was jeb bush's head of emergency planning in florida during that period, if you recall, when florida went through four hurricanes. all of the other states didn't seem to do it and this guy was seen as nonpartisan super emergency management person, if you will. and that's the guy running fema. the president is getting constant updates. you've got to wait it out. you've got to find out a middle storm. and you're managing and brought everything in and waiting for the storm to pass to figure out, okay, how bad is the cleanup? right now it's just hunker down. >> hold on. we got an update. sandy is now a post tropical cyclone, still very powerful and expected to make landfall in one hour right near us. let me show you a picture. this is
is that i spent 25 years working for the federal government in a lot of agencies. those agencies comprise 40% of our discretionary budget. the misapplication of resources going on in our federal government should be stopped. they should be listening to the constituents. thank you very much. >> thank you. i am running for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we ha
so well in ohio. it's a choice. either government should sit by and let the market do its thing or govern comes in and prevents catastrophe. it's the kind of choice we face. >> if you want trust, what obama is talking about on the trail. first of all, there's no second term agenda. when he goes off the record, he gives out an agenda that's nothing like what he's been talking about on the trail. >> it's not true at all. >> immigration. he's talked immigration reform which he's not talked about much in public. cutting $2.50 for every tax dollar in revenue. it's not what he's been running. >> if you want to talk about being factually accurate, it's factually inaccurate to say governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his op-ed, you are journalist, you believe words are important. what he says is he believes the government should have provided financial guarantees. the difference between governor romney and president obama is who gets to stand first in line to get paid off. >> money in the market that was going to go into the auto industry. >> that's w
and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president and what governor christie is talking about. you know, this is the kind of politics that independent voters, moderates, the gettable, undecided -- >> that tiny number. >> that's what they want to see. they want to see a system that works. and when you have frankly, someone who is brash and outspoken and conservative, working with a president who's supposed to be polarizing, christie and obama working together with a single focus, i think it actually encourages people about politics, about government, and about th
strengthens, policies tightened, governance revisited, and institutions made safer, and our work continues. that brings us to today, on the brink of the one year anniversary, civil lawsuits, perjury trials, and we can expect more fallout to come. over the last year, we have learned much about ourselves, our many cultures, our values, and our vision. we're still working through some difficult issues, but the question remains where do we go from here? the answer can be found by returning to penn state's core mission -- teaching, research, and service. our bottom line is delivering an outstanding education to students. our students are our top priority. i repeat, our students are our top priority, and they are doing great things. for example, this year, our journalism students captured the national championship in the william randolff hurst journalism award. engineering students took top honors in the ecocar competition. others race to get their vehicle to the moon in the lunar x prize competition. meteorology students won the forecasting challenge, and notably this week, more than 3400 penn
from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more this year than we're taking in. >> including disaster relief? >> we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view. for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debt and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off makes no sense at all. >> just to recap, governor romney, at least the governor romney of 2011, believed the government could not afford programs like fema and i said it was immoral and made no sense to keep spending money on disaster relief and even better to send these to the private sector. when reached for a statement, romney's campaign of 2012 told us, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions. as the first responders states are in
's a time when we remember what government is for and we also remember what mitt romney said fema should be. and that is privatize. you're watching our special coverage of hurricane sandy here on "politicsnation" on msnbc. >> right now the wind is really, really ripping. it's been getting stronger and stronger. the rain is going sideways and i can feel the sand hitting my back. >>> we're back on "politicsnation" with our continuing coverage of hurricane sandy. hundreds of thousands of people have already lost power. many in new york and new jersey. and joining me now by phone is new jersey congressman robin andrews who is near the impact point in new injuries see. congressman, thanks for speaking with us. >> thank you, reverend, for your concern about our people here. >> what's the latest that you can tell us? >> well, the latest is that sandy is right at us. it's hitting atlantic city soon. my district is 30 miles from that so i can see the sight of t we have police officers, nurses, social workers been out for the last 48 hours. they are doing a fabulous job. we have shelters set up. we h
to see them spending more time letting people know about other things going on in the government and have been mentioned. the activities that they talk about are not necessarily all the things we should be concerned about. there's hardly any mention made about the comments joe biden made to the man who came to pick up the body of his son. i don't know that these are the kind people that we should ever presented last but no one will touch these issues. guest: if nobody touched those issues, you would not know about it. there's no shortage of information these days. these campaigns are being covered like never before and you can get a lot of the daily horse race aspect, but there's plenty of coverage of what the candidates are saying of the campaign trail and how that equates to the previous statements, policies they have enacted. i think that there is plenty of information for people. they just have to be willing to sit down and find it. host: here is "the bloomberg insider" take on colorado put out on august 27th. can you explain? guest: in our last legislative session, for the third time
% and is a firm believer that the 1% will take care of everything else. he does not believe in government. he does not believe in big government. host: another article in "politico" -- next call comes from mississippi on a republican line. what do you think? caller: i think governor romney would reach across the aisle. president obama definitely has not ever reached across the aisle. he pushed his obamacare through without any thought of what the people of america wanted. he is limiting health care for the older people. he is trying to pretend he really cares about people by going to these flooded areas, and that is not going to wipe out his record of working against the people of america. host: on our independent line, gabriel. caller: i think that overall, the party that would be most willing to compromise and come to a situation no room and discuss the politics that we need to be discussing past to be the democratic party. there are a lot of things that i do not support about the democrats and the republicans. i think overall that in order to get the things done that we need to have done, there
the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps politics? >> the answer is jobs, and we need to create an environment in washington, d.c., where we are working together. we are trying to create an environment of working together. it is a political year. of course she

[laughter] congressman frank will be here discussing the domestic and foreign policy issues pertinent to the upcoming election. it is my pleasure to extend a special welcome to any new commonwealth members of this evening. you'll need the most well-informed interesting people in the bay area when you attend the commonwealth club agents all of whom are as interested as you are in savitt discussion and social interaction. now want to this evening's program, there are question cards you should have been handed on your seats for joan walsh. fill them out, right on the question and there will be collected and we will ask them i
. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it to the states, that's the right direction. if you can send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: that is mental! i can't believe he said that! so we shouldn't have fema at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend f
personal experience. >> >> you cited the number of people who earn their paychecks from the government. if you turn down the government are we exasperating the problem? >> we have made our economy depended on government. what we need to do to turn this economy around is trim down the drag of government and increase the entrepreneurship and the private sector and when you grow the -- >> do you mean term jobs? >> we need to hold the rate of growth of government to no more than the rate of inflation. jack disagrees. >> we have done it. the average growth since i took office i is -- is 1.7%. we're going back to the administration were our state government headcount. the only administration going back all the way to the administration and it is not to layoffs, it has attrition. no other administration can say that. we will make a move in the right direction. >> we've seen the governor's rec. what about yours? can you tell us about how you were able to create jobs or how you managed? >> it is not the government's roll to create jobs. i have worked with large employers. successful companies.
government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consiste
about government covering their health-care costs. i am on medicare now, certainly the government takes my. when i was working, you have no idea how many times, because i was the person who put the insurance payments into the computer when i came to the hospital, and you have no idea how the insurance companies to turn down a thing this. host: even though they make their comments known about the presidential race, we are focusing on cost and said races in your state. a couple of stories, at this one out of new york when it comes to hurricane sandy, federal money do not up to states and hurricane aftermath, the first trickle of federal funds start to go out. 29 million to rebuild highways. $30 million to hire temporary workers to help with the cleanup. it is certainly to the multibillion dollar bill for the government. the federal office has 7.5 billion to spend. an additional 5 billion could be made available withinan offsets required in other government programs. that is in the new york times. when it comes to how the money is concerned, this out of the new york post. the state labor d
areas of the government. >> senator, you talked about the fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of december. we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, and we also have, like you were just talking about the trillion sequester cuts. all these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything as is? or do you think, do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week? >> yeah, i think that the best way to talk about the tax rates is they're what we've had for 10 years. businesses have made their plans predicated on a tax rate. i don't think we should increase the tax rates on anybody. i don't care if you're rich, middle class or poor. we shouldn't divide up people. we should divide people into two sectors. private sector, public sector. i don't want to grow the public sector, i want to grow the private sector. so that means means, leaving as much money in the private sector as possible. i don't want to tax anybody any more to
mitt romney's proposals to cut personal income and corporate taxes, reduce the size of government, roll back regulation and boost energy exploration could generate jobs but only over the long term. moody's analytics estimated that the president's proposed jobs act would have generated 1.9 million jobs through infrastructure projects, the rehiring of public employees, and tax credits. but the bill was blocked in congress. given that. >> it's simply the case that neither candidate has a plan for dealing with the immediate jobs crisis. >> there's not a whole lot of discussion going on about how to promote jobs right now. because what one would normally talk about is more stimulus, either more government spending or more tax cuts. but the deficit situation has now grown so bad that there's just no appetite for further borrowing at this time. >> maya macguineas runs the committee for a responsible federal budget, a bipartisan group that lobbies congress. she says uncertainty about how the government will deal with the deficit and the huge national debt is inhibiting employers from hiring. >>
have a bunch of issues. and what that does is create uncertainty. if the government can go and do what they want regardless of what the lot is -- what the law expert, and the government says coppola -- what the lot is, and the government says, and going to do it and go ahead and sue me. that is as much of the problem as the volume we have seen. the cost of the regulation is inconsistent with the underlying law that was passed by congress, or never even contemplated by congress. co2 is a toxic substance. i cannot imagine anyone who voted for the clean air act who would have suggested that was something that was covered under the definition when they passed that bill. the overriding issue is government run amok because the president is incapable of getting any of the stuff through the congress. you have a president who has decided that we are going to do this on our own. and the media, as we all know, it's certainly not going to go out and hammer him for doing these things. they agree with him for the ones to do. they let him get away with it. it is up to conservatives to try to make the
in such a way that people can be represented in governments in a more effective fashion than they are now. president karzai has been handed a constitution where he rules the whole country. a saint would use that power. he has abused that power. i would like to look into a new constitution that would represent the people in afghanistan better than today. >> time for a new constitution in afghanistan? >> i think that we need to first of all make sure that everybody who has served there in this country, that we recognize they did everything that we asked them to do. in the and they have been asked to help train police forces. much like the national guard, they have been asked to help train them so they can take care of their own country. they need to do that. the sooner we can get out of afghanistan, the better. we need to invite these gentle back to the small communities of this district. we need to build here. we need to build infrastructure here. >> not that you are not saying something important, but i promised you earlier we would get to the farm bill. the prior farm bill has expired fo
and local governments has been outstanding. obviously we are now moving into the recovery phase and a lot of the most severely- affected areas. new jersey, new york have been pounded by this storm. connecticut has taken a big hit. because of some of the work done ahead of time, we have been able to get over 1000 officials in place. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water and emergency generators to ensure hospitals and law enforcement offices are able to stay up and running as their of their responding. we will continue to push as hard as we can to make sure power is up throughout the region, and obviously this is mostly a local responsibility, and the private utilities are going to have to lean forward, but we're doing everything we can to provide additional resources so that we can expedite getting power up and running in many of the communities. there are places around newark, new jersey, where you have 80 percent of the people without power. my instruction has been do not figure out why we cannot do something. i want to figure out how we do something. i want you to cu
. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i voted to strengthen our 34il8 tear. military [applause] a couple of things happen when i beat senator nelson. the second thing that happens is harry reid will no longer control the agenda. [applause] so florida, we're counting on you, we're counting on you to get out there and vote for mitt romney. i'm counting on you to go out and vote for me. together we'll make sure that mitt romney is the next president, that i'm the next se
." >>> good government, good politics. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, i can't think of a better job than helping the american people defend themselves. fortunately for president obama, that's his job this week. he signed up for it, and now it needs doing. there's no walking away from it, nothing that takes precedence over putting his head and heart into ensuring the absolute best of his ability that people in the northeast part of the country recover and begin to reconstruct from this natural emergency that's come down on it, and every second this president applies himself, the most he must hope that the electoral momentum will shift in his direction because these several days will test if the president shares the hope on which he's built his public life. here is the latest on sandy's devastating impact. this storm has been blamed for at least 38 deaths so far. there's new video this afternoon showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state
at the state level with the federal government pitching in, helping out as they can. the president arrived in atlantic city. he was greet at the bottom of the stairs by an individual on the republican side that's praised him so e fusively and that's chris christie. they got aboard marine one. administrator fugate was with them. they traveled about an hour. long beach island, ship bottom, seaside heights, seaside heights, in particular, as we have seen from our media helicopters hit particularly hard. the president has landed on the way now to a community center that's sheltered as many as 200 at the worst part of the storm at a place outside of atlantic city. there we expect the president to tour the shelter, helping out those in distress and then make a statement, steve. i think we can expect the president to try to project calm, concern, empathy, authority if you will. what we'll not see the president project is any sort of overt political age toll this. this is all very serious and chris christie by his side as he had all afternoon. >> it's still tore and talk about the tone of the pres
,000 jobs, health care 31,000, retail, 36,000, except for government, which is a decrease of 13,000 jobs. >> right. >> of course the republicans have been banging this drum about, you know, this -- how too much money has been pumped into government, government doesn't create jobs. government has been streamlined looks like in the last month. >> it has. we've seen government jobs come down consistently over the last several months. something for everyone and what the romney campaign should probably be pointing to is not the unemployment rate going up, it went up for a good reason because people are looking for jobs, what they should be looking at are wages which are stagnant and quality of jobs being created. these are industry, you know, jobs in service industry, some of the health care jobs aren't that great. a little more nuanced argument to make but hard for the talking points on the final day of campaigning. the 171 number is good for problem. the only problem if unemployment had gone back above 8%. this is not there. it's a wash pretty much. >> we've talked a lot about this day and
opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s
. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't see any kind of a national move toward bigger government as a result. >> paul: kim, the other big story this week is that the romney campaign has been expanding the field. the electoral field moving into pennsylvania with a very big ad buy much bigger than the obama campaign and even talking a little how the fact that minnesota could be into play and the president was in wisconsin, and close to campaign in iowa, places where he should, you think he would have locked up. do you take this expansion of the field seriously? >> yeah, and i think that this is part of the momentum argument for romney, now, you've had the obama campaign desperately trying to tamp that down saying it's not true, it's not real. the reality is what you've seen since the denver debate is mitt romney pulling ahead in a lot of places, now, that momentum has slowed down a little
